Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

1995 volvo 850 turbo no hot air

My heater is not working. i started my car this morning and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Once i got in the car it was only blowing out cold air. I checked and everything was in the right position. It worked fine last winter but not now. I have also noticed that the fan stays on a few minutes after i have parked the car. i have barely used the air conditioner, could really use your help if possible.

Low on coolant would be my first guess. Does the temp gauage go up to middle, normal range?Should have a low coolant light on dash, but sometimes the sensor is diabled or broken. I would relace the t-stat and the sensor next to the t-stat housing. Tou will need a 40 torx to get the t-stat off.

2000 caddy Seville ...after starting and engine warm turn on the heater and it blows cold air. Fan works / waiting for hot air and then all the sudden it kicks in. Engine at normal temp


Low coolant, if there is an air pocket in the engine it will make it to the heater core. Once there , the air coming out is cold/cool. Once the coolant fills the heater core, it gets hot. If the coolant is fine hot or cold, then have the HVAC system scanned.

Heat problem. Heater only works sometimes. Blows out almost AC temperature majority of the time. No engine overheating problems. May or may not be related to actuator issue (vent always open)


Check to see if your heating system is properly filled. Air in system can often prevent the proper flow of hot coolant into the radiator core resulting in your issue.

Long time before heater blows warm air


That seems pretty normal, the heater works by blowing excess heat from the engine coolant. So the coolant has to be warmed completely for the heat to work, you can get a heater that plugs into your cigarette lighter that will heat the vehicle instantly.

I have a 1998 Honda civic 1.4i.Turned car on this morning heater on full to defrost windscreen.After 10 minutes still blowing cold air!No noises etc and all settings work but still cold air.Help!


Are the radiator hoses from the engine to the firewall hot? If so, it's probably not the thermostat, it's probably either the heater core or the controls not allowing the heat to get in. Best advice I have (because I had to replace the heater core in my car last year) is to buy a Chilton repair manual for it. it walks you through everything. If it is a heater core, be prepared for a long job...

Sounds as if there may be a vacuum leak somewhere, possibly behind dash causing it to switch back and forth from hot to cold and vise versa

Heater does not blow hot air, just cool air


You can put a higher temp thermostat and that should help, but it should at least have 170 degree air right now if it was working right. There are two other things you might check for, the diverter door make some sound when you switch from heat to cool and back, I can't tell you for sure if it is a manual, vacumn or electric but that would definitely cause it to blow cold air. There is also a valve which cuts off circulation to the heater core when your not using it. This valve will be in line with the heater hoses going to your heater core. I have seen some that were actually part of the heater core box. I feel pretty sure one of these will be your problem. Also if your car is low on coolant it would not heat properly. Hope this can help you!
